Lewis "Mucaw" Jefferson (1987-2008)
I was deeply saddened tonight to hear that one of our Walker family, Mucaw, crossed over to the Spirit world. I don't know the details of his passing. I loved hearing Mucaw sing, which he did so often, up at the front of line, his rich, baritone voice keeping time with his tin can shaker. I walked countless miles to the songs of his ancestors,from the Quechan of Arizona, songs that he sang proudly and with the utmost care and respect. Sometimes, when I heard him sing, I couldn't place that deep, soulful voice in the body of such a young man...it just seemed to come from somewhere else. I pray that he is still singing with his ancestors and offer my prayers to his family and beloved grandparents who were so proud of him. You will be sorely missed my friend.
